"For women in Canada the sting of the Federal government abandoning itscommitment to equality is razor sharp. It is not only about abandoning fundingto the Status of Women program, it is about the utter lack of commitment tothe principal of equality," said Paul Moist, president of Canada's largestunion the Canadian Union of Public Employees.
